Thanks gibbo.

Just started looking at 'T' in my tree and noticed a few gaps.

Can't see a birth for Martha in NSW.

A slight problem.

Death notice has daughter Elsie (Mrs. Keen).

I have the birth and death in post #1 and this marriage in my tree.

Marriage 9538/1915 THORNLEY FREDERICK - TURNER ELSIE M - NEWTOWN

1937 NSW Electoral Roll - Dalley - Marrickville
THORNLEY Elsie May, 39 Sydney street, home duties

Thanks Rupert.

An error but it's nothing like Thornley. :rolleyes:

They didn't seem to be together and no mention of Frederick here:

The Sydney Morning Herald - Friday 28 July 1967 p.22
DEATHS
THORNLEY, Elsie May.-July 26, 1967, late of Church Point, beloved mother of Fred (deceased), Harold, Kenneth (deceased), Daphne (deceased) and Beryl (Mrs. J. Ferguson).

1930 QLD Electoral Roll - Kennedy - Charters Towers
THORNLEY Frederick, Ryan st., engineer

1936 QLD Electoral Roll - Kennedy - Charters Towers
THORNLEY Frederick, Paul st., picture theatre proprietor

1943 QLD Electoral Roll - Wide Bay - North Pine
THORNLEY Frederick, Victoria Esplanade, Woody Point, theatre proprietor

It's the correct death in Qld:

Death 1946/B06773 Thornley Frederick - William - Betsy Ball

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 15 June 1946 p.32
DEATHS
THORNLEY.-June 1, 1946, passed away suddenly at Brisbane, Fredrick Thornley, loved brother of Pollie, Tom, Ethel and Alf. Privately cremated.
